I would be grateful if anyone could confirm this is an aphid and suggest what species it might be. Enlarging the original photo seems to show that it is covered in black bristles, and its legs and long antennae are striped with black.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction. My specimen certainly very closely resembles other images of the nymph.
